Enjoy a hayride at the Castle Hills Fall Festival. The event is FREE!

The annual Castle Hills Fall Festival returns in October, with a scary haunted house, chili cook-off and progressive beer tasting. October also brings outdoor movie night and a community garage sale with all proceeds benefitting charitable organizations. Movie night and the annual Fall Festival are free; costs are minimal for the haunted house, chili cook-off and garage sale booth rental.  All events take place in the Castle Hills Village Shops Plaza, a one-acre-plus site featuring tree-shaded walkways, gardens and numerous water features, including the very popular interactive water fountain, a permanent stage and outdoor seating. The plaza is located at 2560 King Arthur Blvd. at Lady of the Lake in the Castle Hills neighborhood. Everyone is welcome!

Enjoy free ice cream while it lasts and don’t forget to bring extra chairs and blankets.
